Hello,
\015\012
\015\012Sorry about the problem.
\015\012
\015\012I will try as much as possible to give you a detailed steps you can try out.
\015\012
\015\012And they are going to be in two Options.
\015\012
\015\012First options is this:
\015\012
\015\012Put on your Computer,
\015\012
\015\012While it is booting, Keep tapping the F8 Key, and this will bring up the Menu where you will have to
\015\012select the different options of booting.
\015\012
\015\012First of all try out "Last Known Good Configuration".
\015\012
If it doesn't work, then try booting into safe mode.
\015\012
\015\012If it boots in Safe Mode,then do these:
\015\012
\015\012First, open my computer,
\015\012
\015\012right-click on your hard drive, and select properties,
\015\012
\015\012then select tools tab, then under the tools tab, you should see error-checking,
\015\012
\015\012then click on "Check Now", then select the tabs under this and click on start.
\015\012
\015\012It will tell you that it will be done at the next system restart, so click on OK, and restart your system.
\015\012
\015\012Next, Defragment your hard Drive, by going to Start--->All Programs-->Accessories-->System Tools-->Disk Defragmenter.
\015\012
\015\012All these things are going to take you a lot of time to finish but I'll tell you the truth...they are worth it.
\015\012
\015\012After all these, you can now (optionally) improve the performance of your system by going to this place :
\015\012
\015\012Right-Click on my computer, Properties, then Click on Advanced, then under the performance tab,
\015\012click on settings,
\015\012and select 'adjust for best performance'.
\015\012
\015\012This will change the appearance of your system and significantly increase your system speed.
\015\012
If it doesn't boot into Safe mode, then go to this next one:
\015\012
\015\012Select Safe mode Command prompt.
\015\012
\015\012When you get to command prompt, type: chkdsk or chkdsk /f (note the Space before the /f), and press enter.
\015\012
\015\012This will scan your system for errors and correct it.
\015\012
\015\012In case it is as a result of a hardware problem, try this:
\015\012
\015\012Get a screwdriver, unscrew your laptop at the back where you have a symbol of RAM(Memory) drawn,
\015\012If you can't do it by yourself let a technician do it for you.
\015\012
\015\012Remove all your RAM(Memory Sticks), and clean the tip of the connector with an eraser, and re-insert it one after the other.
\015\012
\015\012That is, if you have two of them, after you insert the first one, put on your system and see if it works, then do the same thing with the other one.
\015\012
\015\012if the two of them works, them insert the them all.
\015\012
\015\012but if it is just one that worked, just remove the other one that is not working and replace it.
\015\012
\015\012If Trying All these does not work, then Go to this next option.
\015\012
\015\012If you have a Windows Installations CD.
\015\012
\015\012Insert it into your CDROM Drive, then when you put on your system,
\015\012
\015\012Go into the system BIOS/Setup by pressing 'Del' key or any other key (e.g F10 for HP PCs) required to enter setup while the system is booting.
\015\012
\015\012Now look for where you have Boot Sequence or Boot Order.
\015\012
\015\012Select the CDROM to be the one where the system will boot from,
\015\012
\015\012then follow the On-Screen instruction and select repair.
\015\012
\015\012(Which means you will have to get a Windows Installation CD.)
\015\012
\015\012All these are the FULL trouble-shooting steps you will need to get your system working.
\015\012
\015\012But if after trying all of them out it still does not work,
\015\012
\015\012Then you will have to take the system to a good technician.
\015\012
\015\012Kindly keep me posted and let me know how it goes.
\015\012
\015\012Thank you for using FixYa.
\015\012
\015\012Good luck
